My hubby came home from the doctors and told me one of his moles is cancer, the Doc will surgical remove it in a few days. Should I be very worried my DH didn't seem concerned. And I really don't know much about this type of cancer. Do any of you have experience with this sort of thing and what are your story's?

There are multiple types of skin cancer and some are more threatening than others. You really have to have more information to make decisions. My sister was just diagnosed with a pre-cancerous lesion (Proliferative verrucous leukoplakia) in her mouth that is very serious, My mother just had "squisih", her term, Squamous-cell carcinoma growth removed, not serious if detected early and removed. I just had one removed from my hand (pre-cancerous) and another biopsied (non-malignant). The moral of the story is Inform yourself.
